The most accessible, integrated source of clinical psychiatric information--completely updated CURRENT Diagnosis & Treatment: Psychiatry, Third Edition is the ultimate reference for quickly answering day-to-day questions on psychiatric illness in both adults and children. Comprehensive in scope, yet streamlined in its coverage, this time-saving clinical companion reviews essential psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic approaches to the full range of psychiatric disorders. This find-it-now text uses the acclaimed CURRENT presentation consisting of Essentials of Diagnosis, General Considerations, Clinical Findings, Differential Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prognosis. The book opens with a section on the key principles and practice points of psychiatry, from decision making, epidemiology, and genetics to evaluation techniques and types of therapeutic interventions. This is followed by two core sections covering all areas of psychiatric disorders first in adults and then in children, ranging from amnesia and sub developmental delays, autism, and other pediatric behavioral problems. The last section focuses on practicing psychiatry in special environments such as the emergency department, the hospital, and the legal system.
